Raila Odinga Homa Bay Stadium was a project initiated by former Governor Cyprian Awiti.
It cost Sh369 million.
It has a main pavilion with a sitting capacity of up to 5,000 spectators and more terraces.
Homa Bay Governor Gladys Wanga said naming the stadium after Odinga is based on the sacrifices the ODM leader has made in his life.
She said Odinga fought for devolution.
"If it were not for him, we would have been begging for resources from the government. But because of his sacrifice, we have funds that we use for development," the governor said.
She invited Gor Mahia, the Kenyan champions, to make the facility their home ground.
"Homa Bay is home of talent. Gor Mahia trace their roots here and can use the stadium as their base," Wanga said.
"We do not just want to be known for local matches only. We need to be counted among counties that can host international games as well," Wanga said.
